    I Wish Culture Paid the Bills

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Coworkers are kind and helpful New Offices Great to get exposure to PE

    Cons

    Severely underpaid, which leads to understaffing, which leads to current employees being overworked. No adjustments for inflation or cost of living. Push from management and hire ups to be fully on-site while offering no stipends or incentives. Workload comparable to other PE firms but compensation is nowhere near it. Healthcare plan is pretty terrible.

    For the Good of the Firm

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Generous PTO policy for entry-level analyst positions. The Firm touches multiple aspects of the private markets giving insight across strategies and sectors

    Cons

    Siloed investment teams: No coordination amongst investment teams when looking at funds vs investments HR is not well-equipped to handle a 500+ person company, as evidenced by recent management exits Work culture is centered around an idea of work-life balance, and pay is subsequently less due to this idea; yet, workflow amount and expectations are still similar to other PE shops Hamilton Lane is not a true PE shop, they do fund of funds, secondaries, and co-investments, so finding and sourcing true PE deals and engaging with companies is the exception not the norm, counter to how the firm positions itself in informational interviews Noticeable difference between pre and post-IPO hiring employees culturally

    Poorly organized firm

    Jul 11, 2022 - Senior Associate 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    People are generally nice and willing to help you out Office space is new Ability to learn a lot about the private markets

    Cons

    Incredibly low pay, even when accounting for cost of living Never adjusted salaries for inflation, they do not care about keeping employees if it means improving benefits and salaries They do not care about retaining employees, so the people who stay end up with double the work and absolutely no acknowledgement from senior managers (who got in early and get paid in stock options) No perks at the office. They require employees to go to the office but don't offer any sort of travel stipend even though they moved the office far out into the suburbs. No inflation adjustment to adjust for employees
